The AP Program through College Board provides willing and academically prepared high school students with the opportunity to study and learn at the college level. Overall, there are 38 AP courses and exams. At Wood Memorial we offer AP Language and AP US History to Juniors, AP Literature and AP Calculus to Seniors, and AP Physics and AP Biology to Juniors or Seniors that meet the pre-requisites. Only high ability students  or those who are on the AP Potential list based on those PSAT scores are eligible to take AP classes.  Each AP course is modeled on a comparable college course, and each AP course culminates with an AP Exam. The AP Exam is a college-level exam. It is developed and scored by college and university faculty. It’s important for everyone to understand that AP courses are designed to be college-level courses. They are not just “hard” high school courses or honors-level courses. Students can earn college credit and/or advanced placement based on their performance on AP Exams. In the U.S., most colleges and universities grant credit and/or advanced placement. Note that each college or university sets its own policy, and these policies do vary quite a bit. The URL, exploreap.org/creditpolicy, provides additional information on this.. The AP Program potentially allows students to save money in college. This can be measured in two ways: The first is the total number of college courses students will have to pay for. The second is measured in the total amount of time required to earn a college degree.
